Physiotherapy (from the Greek. physis — nature+ therapeia — treatment) is a specialized area of clinical medicine that studies the physiological and therapeutic action of natural and artificially created physical factors on the human body.
Why physical therapy helps:
Physical therapy is often an important supportive element in the treatment of various acute and chronic diseases. Physiotherapy treatments are easy to use, have almost no side effects, is indispensable in the period of rehabilitation, recovery from various diseases. Today in therapeutic and prophylactic purposes actively use the energy of electric current of different frequencies, magnetic fields, light, ultrasound, etc.
Any physical factor is a complex stimulus that evokes in the organism a complicated adaptation reaction, therefore, can affect the pathogenetic links of the disease and its core symptoms (pain, inflammation, etc.).
For example, the use of permanent continuous electric current of low voltage and small force with the purpose of treatment (galvanization) causes in the tissues of specific local biophysical processes that, in turn, changes the excitability of nerves and muscles, stimulates the regulatory function of the nervous system, reduces pain and tactile sensitivity, expands the small blood vessels. Thisway, this physiotherapeutic effect provides anti-inflammatory, analgesic, resolving actions. This example demonstrates that the physical impact on tissues and organs in its effect may approach other treatments, however, should not be considered physical impact, as an alternative to medical or surgical treatment – physiotherapy is used in a complex additional method of treatment!
Treatment with physical therapy. Practice methods:
Ultrasonic external therapy;
Lilipolis-therapy — impact on areas of the body of the patient variables sinusoidal currents. Intense has aphrodisiac, analgesic, stimulant, sosudoreguliruyuschee effect on nerve and muscle fibers.
Indications: cervical and lumbar degenerative disc disease, hypertension, bronchial asthma in the interictal period, lasting cough, paresis, scoliosis.
Magnetic therapy is the therapeutic use of the magnetic component of an alternating electromagnetic field of low frequency. Has a vasodilator, catabolic, limfogranulema, trofostimuliruyuschy, gipokoagulyatsii hypotensive effect. In the physiotherapy MC “Tone” of magnetic therapy treatments are performed on high-performance device, “pole-2M”. Thanks to an integrated timer that controls the process and in time disables the magnetic field, the sessions comfortable and safe for patients.
Electrophoresis and iontophoresis:
Electrophoresis — a method of physical therapy during which the organism is the simultaneous effect of direct current and medicinal substances. Particles of a medicinal solution injected through the skin or mucous under the action of an external electric field. The duration of the procedure from 10 to 20 to 30 min. the Course of treatment consists of 10 to 20 procedures carried out daily or every other day.
Pneumomassage is an effective means of circulatory support, providing increased regional blood flow, lymphatic drainage and increase blood flow from capacitive (venous) vessels. A direct result of pneumomassage is the decreased capacity of the vascular bed, the displacement of venous blood and lymph from the area of compression. The result is: the expansion of capillaries, and increased tissue perfusion; activation of transcapillary exchange and tissue metabolism; elimination of tissue hypoxia and leaching “toxins” in the form of non-completely oxidized products of metabolism; the selection of a number of active biological substances involved in the activation of the adaptive-trophic function of the autonomic nervous system; stimulation of extensive extra — and interoceptive reflexogenic fields in the zones of compression.
Ultrasonic outdoor therapy:
Ultrasound is a high frequency mechanical oscillation of elastic media. Ultrasound has powerful anti-inflammatory action, promotes the resorption and softening of the infiltrates, scar elements, increases General and local metabolic processes, improves trophic tissues. With ultrasound you can enter a variety of drugs topically to enhance its effects on damaged tissues and organs. The impact of ultrasound in the thoracic and lumbar spine improves sexual function in men. The exposed area of the external genitalia causes positive changes in the system of neuroendocrine regulation, increases the content of serotonin in blood. Cystitis, prostatitis cystalgia and the use of ultrasound therapy has analgesic effect. The removal of pain reduces inflammation and spastic phenomena, restores the urine, composition of urine to normal. Ultrasonic therapy is used in urological and gynecological practice. With the medical purpose apply two main methods of ultrasound effects: abdominal and cutaneous.
This aerosol method of treatment by therapy of diseases of the upper respiratory tract with the help of a nebulizer. The advantages are its quick effect, the minimum concentration of the drug substance, deep impact, high bioavailability.
Physical therapy in Nizhny Novgorod. Physiotherapy:
In many medical institutions of Nizhny Novgorod physical therapy is actively used in the complex treatment of acute and chronic diseases, as well as during rehabilitation and recovery. Physiotherapy in MC “Tone” luxury is equipped with modern equipment for carrying out physiotherapeutic treatment.
